Kloeckner Metals’ Hawaii branch is celebrating its 60th Anniversary this year. Located on Oahu, the facility began as Ziegler Steel on Ualena St. in 1959. After Ziegler, it was owned by Ferro Union for a few years. Then, when it became a part of Macsteel in 1999, the operation moved to the current location on Kalaeloa Blvd.
facility offers metal roofing manufacturing, a steel service center, and
the only hot-dip galvanizing in the state. Combined with the facility’s other
extensive value-added capabilities, such as burning, punching/drilling holes,
shearing, and saw cutting, they are able to provide a diverse product offering
and satisfy customer needs.
The key to the Hawaii facility’s continuing success is its
employees. With excellent customer service, dedicated employees, and extensive
sales knowledge, the branch has been able to maintain a high level of service
over the years. The philosophy at the branch is to get to know each customer on
a first name basis and treat them like family.
